Goal Setting 'Forget about it

Many motivational speakers and self-help books will tell you
that you must have goals. I've even advocated goal setting
myself in the past.
You write down your goals and detail them for family life,
friends, finances, career, recreation, health, learning,
education and your spiritual life.

However, I've now come to the conclusion that successful
people with strong self-belief don't do goal setting in this
way 'why? 'Because their too busy doing what they need to
do to get what they want to get.

Successful people don't spend time writing down what they
want out of life they just get on and do it. To be
successful at whatever it is you want to do, you need to ask
yourself 'what do I really want to achieve? What are my
dreams and desires, what do I want to build, to create and
what sort of person do I want to be.

You need to clearly identify what it is you want out of
life, what do you hunger and thirst for, what do you really
want to achieve?

If someone held your head under water you'd quickly realise
what you wanted 'oxygen! You need to feel like this to be
successful. Most of us experience this feeling when we fall
in love. We do almost anything to impress and be with the
person of our dreams.

This is how people create success, it's how new countries
were discovered, products were invented, Everest was
conquered and man walked on the moon. You may not want to
achieve something so dramatic, you may want to have a
successful plumbing business, or be an excellent accountant,
or even run a marathon. Whatever it is, once you identify
and focus on it you will release the motivation to make it

There is an often-told story of the swimmer, Florence
Chadwick. On her first attempt to swim the English Channel
she encountered huge waves and chilling temperature. Her
trainers were alongside her in a boat. They had greased her
body to provide protection from the cold and gave her hot
soup from a vacuum flask. She had everything going for her
to ensure she was successful.

However a heavy fog set in and as the fog descended, her
vision was limited to only a few feet. The water seemed to
get colder, the waves higher and she started suffering from
cramp in her arms and legs. She eventually gave up her
effort and asked her trainers to take her on board the boat.

What she didn't realise was that she was only a short
distance from the shore. When the reporters asked her why
she'd given up when she was such a short distance form the
shore. Her answer was quite simple '"I lost sight of what I
wanted to achieve. I'm not sure that I had it firmly in my

You need to have a clear mental picture of where you want to
go. You need to visualise yourself being successful and work
towards it, you then have a far better chance of achieving
what you want to achieve.

And case your wondering about Florence Chadwick 'she did
become the first woman to swim the English Channel on the
8th August 1950. It took her 13 hours 25 minutes and I bet
her arms were tired!
